Monster Hunter Orage, Vol. 1 Review by Gally Lines (3/5 stars)
I've been a die-hard Monster Hunter fan since the first game on PS2, so when I saw Hiro Mashima's Monster Hunter Orage at the store, I had to give it a shot even though I generally think graphic novel adaptations of other works are mediocre at best.
Unfortunately, this manga was a mediocre spin-off too.
Capcom gave Mashima "full freedom" with the MH universe to create his own characters, locations, and even new monsters. This both excited and worried me about how much of the MH I know and love would be in its own manga adaptation. While the geek in me liked seeing familiar monsters, weapons, and armor, I felt the addition of Mashima's own creations, like "Seal Hunters" and "Delma Ioprey," was odd at first but didn't mess with the MH spirit. In fact, there's potential for exciting new aspects to the world of MH as long as Mashima remains in the realm of what could reasonably happen in the games.
But there are some serious flaws with this adaptation. The art was what you'd see in any manga with no unique style to make it noteworthy, though I haven't read anything else by Mashima. The story and characters were cliche with an apprentice trying to follow in his dead master's footsteps, a loner female with a tragic past trying to be tough as nails but learning the value of friendship, a sweet but unconfident female trying to prove her worth, and a narcissistic rival who hits on aforementioned loner girl and vows to be better than aforementioned apprentice. But the worst part of the manga was the main character: the overzealous and stupidly brave apprentice who kept repeating the cheesy teachings of his master and totally off-setting the determined moods of the two female characters with his annoying immaturity. None of the characters' ages were mentioned, but they act like teens.
Rather than being a manga for long-time fans of the source material, Monster Hunter Orage catered more towards newer, younger male readers and fans. (Once again, I facepalm: why are female characters in a fantasy setting -- with especially massive weapons -- so often deprived of adequate armor to show off their supermodel, zero-muscle-tone bodies? Even the games have well-muscled, modestly-endowed female character models.) With the rising cost of graphic novels, most MH veterans and adult readers won't think it's worth $10.99 per volume.
